Many dealers are now offering wulfenite specimens from:
"La Morita Mine, Sierra Mojina District, Chihuahua, Mexico"

Mindat lists a similarly named locality:
"La Morita Mine, Ascención Municipality, Chihuahua, Mexico"

The Mindat locality is not near Sierra Mojina (133 km east of Santa Eulalia) or Sierra La Mojina (near Constitución), both of which are in Chihuahua.

Question: Does anyone know more information about the source of the wulfenite specimens and can you give more specific geographic information?

I suspect the importer is purposely obscuring his source to prevent the competition from bypassing him...

La Morita is the source of the wulfenite and it is in Ascencion Municipality. I do not know where the Mojina attribution comes from, but it is wrong.
